There’s been talk going around the Internet that the singer and her backup dancer are already an item, just several days after she split from fiance James Packer.
That’s up for debate.
What has been confirmed, however, is that Carey and Packer were in the middle of negotiation a prenuptial agreement when they broke up.
And the details of the document are a bit unusual.
According to TMZ, a draft of the prenupwas sent to Mariah’s camp not long before this relationship came to an end, with reps for Carey rejecting it as “tacky and insulting.”
Let’s take a look at various clauses and you can see if you agree, alright?
This passage was considered one of the more controversial conditions of the proposed agreement:
Except for gifts between them for their engagement, wedding or on birthdays and anniversaries, no item of jewelry and/or personal adornment costing over $250,000 will be deemed a gift unless accompanied by, or promptly followed by, a writing specifically stating ‘This is my gift to you.’
Look, all marriages should spell out who gets to keep which so-called gifts valued at over $250,000, shouldn’t they? It’s only fair.
Elsewhere, Packer agreed to purchase certain items clothing for the artist…
… but there’s a blank space for the couple to agree upon a maximum amount he had to shell out.
The document also read that this clothing would not to be used for business or performing and “Mariah shall provide all clothing for her children.”
Who are we to judge another couple, we know.
If Carey and Packer were happy and in love, they could include anything they want to in their prenup.
But it’s pretty clear they were NOT happy and in love, especially not when we see the kinds of business-like conditions they were putting on their romance.
The singer and the Australian billionaire ended their engagement in late October.
The reasons why remain unclear, but insiders close to Carey have deemedPacker to be violent and mentally unstable.
This was another clause in the prenup:
James shall cause a credit card(s) to be issued for use by Mariah and staff … the amount of expenses … shall not exceed US $____ per calendar month.
The amount was blank.
James shall provide the use of one private aircraft, of his selection, for Mariah’s personal use, or that of her children and nannies only when James, in his sole discretion, determines it is appropriate to do so.
What was the main reason why negotiations fell apart?
This provision, TMZ alleges:
James will pay Mariah, and Mariah shall accept, $6 million dollars per year for each full year of marriage, up to a maximum of $30 million … adjusted pro-rata on a weekly basis [$151,385 per week].
Carey supposedly turned down this dollar amount and is now demanding a $50 million payout from Packer, one that she says he agreed to make if the marriage fell apart.
